Custom looking drapes without paying custom prices! Yes, it is possible. Drapes can pull a whole room together and should not be over looked. I bought white linen drapes for our master bedroom and they really need some punch! I am envisioning either a Greek Key tape or simple grosgrain ribbon on the edge to give them some personality.

Look how classic these clean simple drapes look...

Black and white adds glamour to any room.
These drapes are fantastic but all I really want to do is snuggle in to this space with my Kindle!
The orange banding really brought these drapes to life! Who said leaving good enough alone was a good idea, anyway?
Instead of buying Greek Key tape why not use the ribbon to add that bit of detail?
Honey & Fitz blog has a great tutorial on how to add grosgrain ribbon without using a sewing machine. Instant Transformation!

I will give you a sneak peak as soon as I am done...greek key, grosgrain, greek key, grosgrain....or once I've made a decision

*M & J Trimming is a great source to find trim (they just ran a great Living Social deal) and you can't beat Joann's with a 40% off coupon!



Lately I have been seeing a lot of walls painted navy blue and there is something about that rich, inky blue color that I love! I do not know if it is just the color itself, or is it the pairing with other bold colors that is rocking my world?!  Here are a few of my favorites...

The combination of navy and red is such a classic.  
Every room deserves a little sunshine, right?  
  Navy and green is my all time favorite!  Gone are the days of using this color scheme only for "preppy" places!  You can still achieve that classic look with this combination, yet modern feel.
Together, orange and navy gives you that perfect blend of chic!   It gives the room such a fresh spin and always leaves you wanting more!
Navy and pink = GLAM!!  I love the way this color pairing injects a bit of glamour in both of these rooms...ultra sexy and sophisticated!!

Which color combination do you like the best?
